Laurel Christensen, Ph.D.
Chief Audiology Officer, Resound

How many of you remember seeing a grandfather or grandmother with large unattractive hearing aids?

Well over the years technology has gotten smaller and more powerful and at CES 2016 I was introduced to ReSound and interviewed their Chief Audiology Officer Laurel Christiansen PhD.

This smart, innovative and advanced hearing aid has reinvented the hearing aid industry by driving and defining the future of hearing care. Their LiNX2 (links squared) is the world’s first full family of “Made for iPhone” hearing aids that allow you to personally tailor your sound preferences based on the different listening environments.
